Lived up to its reputation

lovely versatile film, while the low iso limits your shooting style, the film has a unique cinematic look and sharpness that you simply cannot compete with.

Great film with beautiful colors

I tried the roll in few environments and in different weather conditions. In the city, in nature, in a sunny day on the beach. Its a perfect film for street/urban photography and wonderful for portraits. I was sad to hear Fuji dropped the Pro production, a little fed up with the Portra hype and CineStill gave me the 50D and I am now addicted. Can't wait to try the 800

Muted colour and not as fine grain as I expected

I've just used one roll of CineStill 50 so far, so it's early days. As many others have commented, it handles bright light well but gets "blocky" in the shadows. I confess to being a little disappointed in the way it scanned, as it seems to me noticeably coarser-grained than Kodak Ektar 100, which scans beautifully - albeit that has a more intense colour rendition. I found one strip curled a little in the scanner - that may have been the processing or my fat fingers - and had to be re-done by re-seating it in the holder (I use a Nikon 9000 which holds film by tension rather than by flat glass like some other scanners). Finally the last frame was chopped in half by the processors, which is either their mis-handling or the result of a slightly short length on the roll (and yes, I started it in the right place and the cameras spaces frames evenly). I have another roll in the fridge and it will definitely get an outing, but I'm not sure I'd rush back for more after that.

Nice film, needs a little work in post

Ran a roll of this through my Kiev 6C as a test of the newly repaired shutter. Someone previously removed the aperture from the lens so was stuck on f2.8 on a really bright sunny day so slow film and an ND filter was order of the day.

Tried as much variety as I could around here - a bit of close-up, a bit of greenery and a bit of building, in a mix of full sun and shade, and the film coped nicely with everything.

Did produce a slight yellow cast developed in C41 (I believe this was originally an ECN2 emulsion) but only needed the mildest tweak to the blue curve to correct and the tweak was the same across all the conditions so easy to apply.

A nice, forgiving, film that I'll certainly be using again!
